Financial Aid

Tuition Assistance

Over $800,000 in tuition assistance is awarded to students each year based on need.  Rice uses a third party, FACTS, to evaluate eligibility in order to administer financial aid objectively and with consistency.  Many factors are considered when evaluating financial need including income, size of family, assets/liabilities, and living expenses.  Applicants are notified by mid-April of the award decision.

Students enrolling for the 2020-21 academic year and requesting tuition assistance must submit a completed FACTS financial aid application with a $30 application.  Commonly asked questions about the financial aid application process can be answered here.  Otherwise, contact Andrea Zamuda in the Rice Finance office at (802) 651-6884 or

Where does the aid come from?

Rice is committed to providing this support to families like yours, but depend on several funding sources to make it happen.
  • Chittenden County parishes provide a portion of their collections to support financial aid.
  • Donations made to the Rice-Cathedral Annual Fund, specifically the Inspire a Life program.
  • Funds raised at our annual Rice-Cathedral Alumni Association Golf Tournament.
  • Scholarships, many established by generous families to memorialize a deceased loved one.
